I've been able to get Ubuntu 16.04.2 working okay on this laptop, using Unity and the Nvidia and Intel Drivers, but when I use Ubuntu 17.04 and Gnome the system locks up booting Gnome with the Intel Driver, but it works fine using the Nvidia driver.. I can get everything to work fine if I boot the kernel with acpi=off.

I am using Kernel 4.10.0-26 and the lockup only occurs when using the Intel Driver (prime-switcher), this does work with Ubuntu 16.04.2.

I'm hoping that the acpi=off will give some insight into the problem.
